Volunteer Ambassadors Project

 

In 2014 we launched our Ambassadors Project in response to requests from organisations, to attend events and give talks or chat to clients about the benefits of volunteering.

Our Volunteer Ambassadors are people of all ages, from a wide range of backgrounds, who are passionate about volunteering, have voluntary experience in different settings, and can talk to a wide range of people about how they could get involved. 

We have visited work clubs, college classes, self help courses, and university career fairs and spoken to hundreds of people about how volunteering can help everyone.

Talks cover topics such as:

  • the basic of what volunteering is, and what to expect
  • practical matters such as reclaiming travel expenses
  • how volunteering can benefit people socially, mentally and physically
  • how volunteering can increase employability 
  • details of how to register with us to search for voluntary opportunities
     

 

If your venue or organisation would like to request an Ambassadors talk, or you have an event coming up which could feature a stall with information about the Volunteer Centre, let us know.

 

If you love volunteering and would like to encourage other people to volunteer too then you could be an Ambassador.

If you are interested, please contact us.
